Arsenal Meet Manchester United For The First Time On This Day, 13th October 1894

                                                                                                                                                                The Newton Heath team of the era in a kit of green and yellow.

Except it was Woolwich Arsenal travelling to Newton Heath on that day at Clayton. Reports  suggest it was a game of two halves, Arsenal taking the honours in the first and a 2 – 0 lead into the interval before the hosts recovered their poise and goals, to draw 3 – 3 at the final whistle.

I dare say that none of the protaganists in this Division Two match day even had an inkling of the rivallry that would exist throughout the following century and a quarter!
